'Governing and Policing Security' (GaPS)

The research group 'Governing Security & Policing' is located at the crossroads between governance, management and criminology. A governance perspective is used to study local, national and international problems related to crime, safety and security. GAPS is focused on (1) the changing nature of security challenges and the changing nature of the actors providing security and control (eg public / private, administrative / judicial), (2) the blurring boundaries between these actors and their power on a policy and operational level (3) the implementation of security policies and its implications for the security actors, their partners and citizens. Since the 1st of October 2013 GaPS is located at the Faculty of Economics & Business Administration at Ghent University.

Anno 2020 GaPS focuses on four central research lines: (1) Governance of Flows, (2) Innovation, Technology and Security, (3) Knowledge Exchange and (4) Security in local Neigborhoods.
